The insulating advantages of wool in cold, wet weather are well known. For time-proven performance combined with today’s technology, look to Browning’s new Highlands II wool. Highlands II offers additional versatility by taking a wool blend and adding a soft tricot lining for extra warmth and comfort, without the itch usually associated with wool. These versatile products are also machine washable. For 2010, an 11 oz. wool blend makes up the parka and bib, offering the same rugged performance in cold weather. The shirt and pant feature lighter weight 7 oz. wool blend to increase their versatility in warmer temperatures and as layering pieces. There is no substitute for the performance of Highlands II wool.
Highlands II and the RMEF.
Elk hunters know what it takes to track down and harvest a big bull. It takes scouting, planning, solid gear and a little luck. Of course, it also takes the help of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Thanks to the efforts of the RMEF, millions of acres of elk habitat remain viable to sustain these magnificent creatures. As a non-profit organization, the RMEF relies on donations for operation, and Browning is proud to be counted among the companies that support their cause. With each RMEF version of Highlands II wool sold, Browning proudly donates a portion of the proceeds to the RMEF and the mission of supporting the majestic elk.
